    Yes, Witz, that is great. Subtly done by both, huh. You know, I somehow missed out on 99% of the Sesame Street and Muppet exposure in my life thus far. This may prompt me to rent some DVDs.


    A mild digression to another powerful stage and sage personality - the great Hindu philosopher, Puppetji speaks out in Puppetji VS The Secret. ambo

    just listened to part two of this dialogue and steve's idea of using puppets to demonstrate different stages of growth is excellent .. i'd LOVE to see it

    hi bernadette,

    having worn glasses now for more than a half century, i was struck by the icon you signed off with. maybe they can add that in with the integral portal, scheduled to be launched, at least in a beta version, in another month or two.

    if you'll allow me to mix threads, i've also been supporting clinton, even though i like obama as well. i just think he could be alot better president if he got the chance to participate in a clinton administration for at least a term.

    i like mccain, for that matter. the most integral candidate, of course, would draw on what's good in all three of these candidates.

    there's a reason to my mixing: just as the country is undergoing a dramatic political transformation, i-i, which has been in a cacoon of sorts for some time now, appears to be approaching the time it will be spreading its butterfly wings.

    there is so much possibility here--made possible, i believe, by ken's integral vision to bring it all together in these pluralitically divisive times. did you happen to listen, more than a year ago now, to ken's conversation with another steve? steve brill? among other things, they talked about the possibility of an integral actor's studio along similar lines to this conversation.

    isn't this what integral is about? availing ourselves of what others in diverse fields have done, no matter what our own particular endeavor might be?

    the stuart davis show has given us an example, with several of his 'voices' interacting with each other in a contentious big mind process that many of us, me at least at his age, could easily relate to.

    but just as in politics, the actual outcome is in no way certain. ceo robb smith said, i believe, that he worked with five companies before this. he was successful with two of them, so there is alot of risk in what he is now doing, but he evidently feels it's worth it, although i'm not sure he's yet moved his family to denver!

    Re: Kermit's channeler converses with Ken

    Your reference to the conversation about the integral actors' studio sounds familiar, ralph. The bringing-it-all-together aspect of integral institute has always been a big draw for me.  And, perhaps learning to live enthusiastically when outcomes are in no way certain is a step in the continuing evolution of consciousness.

    Re: Kermit's channeler converses with Ken

    12th February 2008

    Dear integral readers who loved the "puppet" feature with Steve,

    I was so excited to hear the interview with Steve as Jim Hensen is my mentour as I grew up with the Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock and now Bear in the Big Blue house now I have kids. Why I am so excited is that I have been working on an 8 year project with life sized puppets that teach children a range of skills from speech sounds, literacy, to socialisation, and have been influenced by Ken's work now for 4-5 years. It fits in perfectly with my characters and ways of exploring transactional analysis (therapy), and archetypes. In recent stories I have been inspired to demonstate the variety of world perspectives that people can have. Over the years, I have attracted the interest of funding but I have held off until I was sure of the content (and I wasn't ready personally)....more journeying to have! I am very interested in communicating with Steve and better still Ken if this may be something they would like to explore further.

    I an based in Australia...but just km from Warner Brothers Movie World Studios...handy locality. I have completed the first entire music sound track (12 tracks) and am 7 tracks into the second album. 14 puppets created that are as large as the children that cuddle them. I use the program every day in my private speech pathology clinic and am excited about the progress I see in the children's learning. Ideally my aim is for the project to become commercial on TV as it enables the education and learning to be accessible and free for the kids and families that need it the most. I was most interested in the statistics of iliteracy in the world after reading Ken's books: theory of everything. One of my influences for taking on such a large project was the shortage of therapists and frustration of having a "cure" for conditions of speech, language, literacy, auditory processing ....but limited human and financial resources to do it. Having a passion for textiles art and cartooning...plus the "madness" to take on something this big led me step by step to where I am today. I just know it needs a team of like minded people now to take it the full yards.

    I am interested in speaking with anyone at "integral" who can discuss further options for the future of a venture of this nature. I am especially particular that the project is in the right hands of people who see a much broader perspective and a teal/turquoise view of our world....I am as turquoise as they come!

    Kind regards from paradise on the Gold Coast, Australia

    For kids/people on the Autistic spectrum, there seems to be great "opening up" when they participate in a dramatics program.
